I have tried connecting through my browser but it ask for a user name and password that I do not know. I tried resetting my router and still can not figure out what my user name and password are. I have tried: User name Password admin admin blank admin admin blank and still can't seem to crack it.
You will need to reset the router - stick a pin in the back where the reset button is and hold it in there for 10+ seconds while power is on. This will set it to the default for that model router - you can check Linksys site for the manual to get the default username and password.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Obviously I shouldn't know the password. But it looks like the WiFi access point you're trying to connect has a external login page configured. Which require a user name & password. Although some system has free browsing option for guest. You should contact the administrator for your username & password.
open a web browser window on the connected computer and type http://192.168.1.1
into the address bar and press enter. A window will pop up prompting
you for a username and password to access the configuration page for
your router. Enter admin for both the username and password.
If it not accept then type user name Admin leave the password box blank and then click ok.
If it still does not accept it that means you have changed your user name and password of linksy. To get your linksys default settings you will have to reset your linksys router by inserting a paperclip into the small Tiny hole into the back of the Linksys router for 10 sec.
Now you try to access router by user name and password which is mentioned above.
now you will have Linksys router page and now click on Security seetings on top
choose WPA PSK security settings
Now it will as you the security key
Enter any security minimum of 8 Characters anything you like.
click save settings on the bottom.
now try to connect to your Wireless network
it will ask you the security key
Enter your security and your wireless network is secured now.
here is also the Linksys Tech support no. as well. to know your exact user name and password of linksys and other details.

Knowledge of the WEP key is necessary to USE a wireless connection. Knowledge of the user name and password is necessary to ADMINISTER the wireless router, two different things. If you try to establish a browser connection to 192.168.1.1 (or whatever address your router uses) it will always ask you for the admin name and password. This is true of all routers, not just yours. The factory default values for the WNR1000 are "admin" and "password".
Are you sure that your username is your email address? Many users confuse with the username and email address on facebook. if so then you might get an error message like "username or password incorrect" and finally you'll be prompted to reset your password.
If there's no problem with your connection and browser, this must be the problem.
Do let me know the details so that I can help you better.
For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router.
wireless settings WEP Security then add WEP
code .It is your password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and
restart router. Then you can connect your wi fi network with that code. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
